Advanced Vehicle Options (AVO)

Compatible with Cities Skylines 1.9.2-f1 (Anniversary Patch)

This mod let you customize various options about vehicles.
To access those options simply click on the vehicle icon at the bottom right of your screen (next to the policy icon).

Mod options
- Hide the user interface: Lets you hide the UI completely if you feel like you are done with it and want to save the little bit of memory it takes. Everything will still be functional.

Vehicle options
- Max Speed: Lets you change the maximum speed of the vehicle. Please note that due how the game simulate the traffic, vehicles may not reach their maximum speed (ie. road speed limits).
- Acceleration/Brake: Lets you change how fast the vehicle accelerate/brake.
- Colors: Lets you change the color scheme for that particular vehicle type. When a vehicle spawn a random color is chosen between those 4 colors.
- Allow this vehicle to spawn: Pretty self explanatory. Be careful, disabling all vehicles of a particular service will prevent it to work as no vehicle will be able to spawn. Make sure you have at least one vehicle available for each category.
- Replace last car with engine: Allows you to make the last car of a train be an engine. The engine is automatically reversed. Now automatically applied to existing trains.
- Capacity: Lets you change the capacity of the vehicle. Note: bigger cargo/garbage capacity is not necessarily better. Cargo/Garbage collection needs to be dispatched across the map so the more vehicles you have the better, as long as the road network can handle the load. You don't want the capacity too low either as it will generate a lot more vehicles. Try to stay close to default vehicle values.

- Reload: Restore the backup configuration file created when loading the game or using the Save button.
- Save: Save a backup of the current configuration.
- Remove vehicles: All existing vehicle instances of that type, driving or parked, will be removed. Hold Shift key to remove ALL vehicle types.

How to Replace default vehicles with custom ones

Configuration file
Since version 1.8.0 the configuration is now embedded into the save file. You can still export/import the configuration if needed. If a save file doesn't contain a configuration, the last exported configuration will be used.

The exported configuration file can be found at
If you wish, it is possible to open and edit the file with a text editor (ie. notepad).

Other mods like Improved Public Transport, Transport Line Manager or Service Vehicle Selector can still spawn disabled vehicles. This is intended behavior because they offer greater spawning control. Use them to configure which vehicles you want to spawn instead.
Can be disabled/removed at any time.

THIS MOD IS NO LONGER WORKED ON. Asking for improvements/fixes/compatibility issues is pointless. I'll however make an effort to keep the mod working, if possible, with major updates of the game (I don't own any of the DLCs).

Unfortunately I found a bug that troubles me: out of sudden it prohibits placing bus stops inside bus stations!
I disabled all my mods and activated them one-by-one until I found out that AVO corrupts placing stops inside bus stations (although it is working fine in the beginning).

This is a neat little tweaker for all your vehilcle assets! Easy to use (look for the car symbol in the task bar!) :steamhappy:

Might take a while for it to show effect. Use the remove parked and driving vehicle buttons

Maybe I'm doing something wrong because when I uncheck certain trains to make sure they don't spawn in my city, they still spawn.

It still works 100% for me so it must be an incompatible mod you have. This mod is not broken in any way, the author still updates it to make sure it works with the game updates

Is there a similar mod to this one? Subscribing to this mod causes my game to crash on load. I know it's no longer being maintained, but was hoping I could find an alternative.

This mod's been working for me since it came out, still works fine to this day

@Sir Ludicrous: It seems to work fine for me
